Who Is America?

How can we be the light if we believe it's okay to extinguish life?

in the womb,
in our own right,
in the streets of a war-torn country,
in our own streets,
in another's faith,
in another's country,
NIMBY, anyone?
In the arms of an innocent woman with a covered head and living the only life she's ever known

I am SICK to my stomach after hearing politicians talk about their methods of wiping out an entire people...based upon the sickness of some. It's too reminiscent to my history book.

We haven't learned much, have we?

I am appalled that these politicians aren't considering the fact that it's not about the killing but about the THINKING. That we can kick a fire ant hill, and a dozen others show up the next day (my husband's analogy). Killing doesn't stop the idea...it just sends the idea to another area. Killing isn't cutting it.

It's just killing us.

I can't believe the lies, the ignorance, the shame.

Who is America in Christ's parable of the good Samaritan? Who do we want to be?
